2016 Community Survey

Montrose residents have a special opportunity to weigh in on the quality of city services by participating in the 2016 Community Survey. Data from the survey, being conducted this summer by ETC Institute, will help the city gauge how well Montrose is performing compared with prior surveys and other communities around the region and nation. The results will provide valuable information about citizen satisfaction and help city leaders plan, prioritize, and improve services.

Survey Design

The survey retains some of the recurring questions used in the past, while adding new questions that enhance the value of “service satisfaction” questions by also measuring the importance that respondents assign to each service. This will allow the city to prioritize actions in addressing any deficiencies.


Unlike past surveys that were distributed to all households within the city, this survey will provide questionnaires to about 2000 randomly selected households. Residents who are not selected to participate in the primary sample group can complete an on-line questionnaire.

Please note that residents who complete the online survey will be asked to enter the validation code that appears on the bottom-right corner on the back of the paper survey. Residents who did not receive a paper survey questionnaire are not required to enter a validation code, but should simply enter their address information at the conclusion of the survey and submit. 

We genuinely value your input and hope that you will take the 10-15 minutes necessary to complete the survey. The time you invest in responding will influence many of the decisions that will be made about the future of Montrose.
